Daniel + Kortney

I love stories like this!  I'm going to let Kortney tell it in her own words: 

"Danny is originally from Kansas City, MO, and moved down here about 3 years ago.  He didn't know anyone so he thought he would try Match.  My sweet friends Emily and Cara set up a Match account in the summer of 2013 for me  because they were tired of the...goobers I was dating.  After WAY TOO MANY horrible dates, I closed my account- however I had a month left.  It was in that time that Danny messaged me and he was just too cute.  We talked back and forth for a whole month before I got up the courage to meet him in person.  Our first date was at Red Rock, and I knew that night, that I would marry him.  It took him a little longer to figure it out but the rest is history and we have been together ever since!" 

Kortney had the most awesome room I've ever seen at the Aloft, plenty of space for her to get ready with her bridesmaids! 

Shane documented the guys getting ready also in their completely awesome suite at the Aloft. 

"He took me to our favorite vacation spot in Eureka Springs.  It was where we first fell in love 3 months after we started dating.  He took me to the top of the Crescent Hotel Balcony and proposed there.  It was perfect!"

I had never seen a more packed church.  A true testament to how much this couple is loved and cherished!

"Danny was raised Catholic, and his whole family for the most part is still practicing.  I have always been a huge fan of the song Ava Maria.  I wanted to make sure my mother and his mother were a part of the ceremony so I decided to play that during the Unity Candle that they lit first." 

"My uncle was the officiant, and it was so special to me that he married us.  I have always respected the Godly man that he is and I would have not wanted anyone else." 

These heels were made for walking....across the street to the Aloft to start the party!

After making more new memories with their friends and family, this hot new couple was off to celebrate their honeymoon! Thank you Kortney and Danny for inviting us!
